The hotel itself has a great presence when you drive up. It is a beautiful high- rise, set right on the beach. When we pulled up, my friend’s son turned to her and said “mom the Jersey shore has nothing on this place!” You check-in to a beautiful lobby and the “heart” of the hotel is the lobby bar – Las Palmas. It was always buzzing, day or night. The elevators and restaurants and even the convention center are all off of this lobby bar. We found ourselves starting out here or often meeting friends here.
The rooms at Iberostar Cancun are nice and clean with more than plenty of space for a family of 3. They had a fridge in the room and our room had a great view of the ocean and even a balcony.
The highlights of this hotel for me were:
1 – The pools! I love a good resort pool as that is where I spend most of my time. Iberostar Cancun did not disappoint. There were 7 amazing pools cascading one into the other ending at the infinity pool at the beach – beautiful!
2 – Super FUN pool bar. Around 3 PM every day, resort guests would all seem to migrate there after a day on the beach, golfing or at an excursion. People mingled, the staff interacted with everyone and it was a lively fun place to meet people.
3 – The food. There was such a variety of restaurants! I had no complaints. I tend to like the buffets in resort. This way I am not on a schedule and can eat when I please and I can try different things. The main buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner was really good. At breakfast they made fresh donuts in front of you! They also had a make-your-own omelet stations. The food was similar each night for dinner, with different stations so you could decide what you wanted – make your own pizza and pasta, fresh fish, steak, fajitas and shrimp could all be found for dinner each night.
4 – Space to roam. When we stayed there, the resort was quite full. However, there was plenty of space wherever we went. We never had to wait for a table to eat or for a drink. There was always a beach chair or cabana to be found. I loved this!
5 – The nightly shows. They were a lot of fun and a great way for us to start out each evening.
